Partners & Peers arose from need... the unmet desires of a community of people who live with diabetes or family members who have diabetes, to live unconstrained by diabetes management.
Caring healthcare providers and people who live with diabetes provide education and support to help others successfully integrate Healthy Self-Care Choices into daily life, and effectively use management tools to achieve therapeutic goals and prevent complications.
We believe that people with diabetes have a right to:
Accurate and understandable information about diabetes
An understanding of available options for diabetes care
Participation in all health care decisions
Respectful, nondiscriminatory health care
Confidence in their Diabetes Care Team
We believe that:
Health improves with community effort and support
Community strengthens meaning and purpose
People learn best from others who share their health challenges

Our goal is to promote greater awareness of the need to provide appropriate treatment though use of available tools that benefit people who have diabetes.
